Dirk Bikkembergs Vintage AW 1997 Black Satin Belted Zip Front Coat
Gorgeous vintage coat by Dirk Bikkembergs, from Fall/Winter 1997, shown here documented on the runway, worn by Helena Christensen. A slightly puffed black satin dream with a darted bust and a slit vent at the backside. The most amazing pointed, standing collar that snaps into place at the neck. Coolest quilted, off-set v-shaped asymmetric belt with brand-embossed gunmetal silver belt buckle. Zip up front side, leaving a partial opening at the thigh, with silver zipper and long matchstick style puller. Slit pockets at front hips. Fully lined. This coat has never been worn, with original Henri Bendel tag still attached, retailing at $950 back in it's day.
